San Antonio celebrates Pride in late June with its Pride San Antonio celebration, one of several Pride events held in the city throughout the year. The Pride San Antonio Bigger Than Texas Parade and Block Party takes place this year on June 29, 2013.
Pride San Antonio's Bigger Than Texas Parade and Block Party takes place at Crockett Park, by the city's popular gay-bar strip at N. Main Avenue and W. Laurel Street, a short drive north of downtown. It includes a High Heel Race at 8:30 pm, a block party from noon until 9 pm, and a Gay Pride Parade at 9 pm. Be sure to check the Gay Pride San Antonio online events calendar for more about this event as well as information about the many other parties and celebrations the organization produces throughout the year.
Additionally, plenty of gay-popular restaurants, hotels, and shops will be extra busy during this busy time, and catering heavily to LGBT visitors. Check local gay media, such as Q San Antonio, for details, and also check out the excellent GLBT section of the website produced by the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau.
